4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drank from a tulip glass poured from the bottle. Pours a hazy, ruby-red body with a full head of tan foam. Aroma of caramel with notes of dark fruit. Nice warming finish. A really enjoyable, complex beer

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
0.33L bottle. Pours black with a big tan head that lingers leaving strong lacing. Aromas are strange: basement aromas, stinky cheese, some caramel. Flavor goes pretty quickly to roasted malt bitterness, with some of the cheese flavor coming through. Otherwise, surprisingly little flavor. Fully body with a thick mouthfeel and active carbonation. Overall, a strange beer. Aromas unlike anything I’ve had, and flavor profile is muted and not much going on. Not very pleasant.

Alone at home. Dark brown colored beer with small off-white head and only few carbonation visible. Malty chocolate hinted aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finsh is malty sweet bitter hinted with a rather bitter ending.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted as Valeir Donker but also as Carlos, an aliased version for the former mayor of Asper. Light beige, creamy, thick and stable head, colour very dark brown with a burgundy hue. Soft sweetish aroma of chocolate, candied dates, pear, caramel, cinnamon, hazelnuts, whiff of coffee. Delicately dark malty taste, sweetish but not cloying, nutty, bit chocolatey, finishing in bitterish hops and a hint of toasted bitterness; the biggest downside for me is the rather thin mouthfeel, otherwise a fine dubbel.

Quite average Belgian dark ale. Sweet and yeasty, with a taste of malt, fruit and herbs.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly cloudy reddish amber with a thick mop of white foam on top. Nose is fruity and yeasty. Very creamy on the palate. Taste is of yeasty bread, some cherry and apricot notes, with a brown sugar sweetness. A good Belgium brew that pairs well with fruit, nuts or cheese.
